Yep, today is mine and Joel's 3-year anniversary. We were married on the beach at sunset at the White Orchid Beach House in Makena on December 9, 2005. I can't believe it's been 3 years!!! Actually, I can't believe it's been almost 7 years since we started dating!!! WOW. Time flies, huh!?!? We don't have any exciting plans (at least none that I'm aware of) because our babysitter is unavailable and Joel coaches wrestling until late evening today (it's a weight-cutting day...yuck). I think we'll probably go out to a nice dinner Friday night, then we're going on a quick family camping trip up Haleakala Saturday night.
So I thought I better make my hubby a card today. I used Julee's MoJo Monday Sketch, but stretched it a bit creatively. I think it still works though. I wanted to use the Anniversary Birds set for this card, so I needed to turn the image panel and then I needed to turn the long narrow panel to make it look right and then I just decided to turn the whole thing while I was at it!!! Here's the card....sorry for the poor quality photo...it's been a blustery, dreary overcast day here on Maui today - the temperature right now at 3:45 in the afternoon is only about 76 degrees!!! brrrrrr! that's just downright chilly for us! In fact, I've had a sweatshirt on all day today! Anyway, here's the card (for real this time):I used Kraft CS along with some yummy Basic Grey Granola paper. I paper pieced the birds' bodies (the blue is not quite so bright in real life!). Joel has no appreciation for "foofy" cards as he calls them, so I tried to keep the "foof" to a minimum on this one. I think he'll like it!!
And while we're on the topic of my Anniversary, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite wedding photos with you all.....enjoy! Check out my hottie husband.... :-)
